On 28 December 2018, the Alternate Minister of National Defence Panagiotis Rigas, accompanied by the Chief of Hellenic Navy General Staff, Vice Admiral Nikolaos Tsounis HN, visited Frigate “KOUNTOURIOTIS”, which is on offshore guard duty, where he exchanged wishes with the crew.

Addressing the frigate’s crew, he expressed his admiration and satisfaction with their professionalism and devotion to duty and congratulated them for maintaining high operational readiness during the crisis.

Remember – he stressed – that your contribution and increased operational readiness creates a sense of security and pride. The deterrent role of our Armed Forces not only guarantees our sovereign rights, but is also a stability and peace factor for the broader area”.
